We Australians may well be the biggest coffee snobs in the world. And with so many great options available, there’s no wonder we’re spoiled for choice! But with these countless options also comes a grave aftereffect: the many takeaway coffee cups that land in our landfills each year. Did you know that Australians throw out 2.7 million single-use or disposable coffee cups every single day and that this comes up to around 1 billion cups every year? That’s a startling statistic to be sure!
This is precisely why so many people around the world are now making the switch to reusable coffee cups. Not only are they eco-friendly, you can also get them customised at Coastal Direct Promotional Products for your very own personalised reusable coffee cup!
If you’re on the fence about switching to a reusable coffee cup, let us give you a few reasons to finally make the switch:
Perhaps most importantly, reusable coffee cups are much better for the environment than disposable ones. This is because the standard disposable cup has a lining of plastic that makes the cups waterproof and prevents the liquid from making the paper cup disintegrate. While this property may be great for keeping your coffee inside the cup, it also makes them difficult to recycle. Single-use coffee cups are Australia’s second-largest waste contributor, only after plastic bottles.
Did you know that many cafes may even offer you a discount if you bring your own coffee cup? To find your nearest responsible cafe that is making a conscious decision to reduce its waste and carbon emissions and lets you bring your own coffee cup, Responsible Cafes is a great resource. Some cafes may chop off up to 50 cents per coffee cup. Even if you get takeaway coffee twice a week, this could end up saving you $50 per year!
Are you a business owner and looking for a new and innovative way of marketing your brand that will make sure you are etched into the customer’s mind? Personalised reusable coffee cups can be a great way to promote a business. Because almost a third of Australians enjoy at least one cup of coffee a day, it is a great way to make your business stand out and be remembered. Every time a customer heads into a cafe and brings out the coffee cup with your logo emblazoned on it, it is likely to also catch the eye of the baristas and other patrons, especially if it is in a funky and bright colour, thus also attracting more customers.
The $50 you save per year when using a reusable coffee cup will more than makeup for the price you paid in the first place! This is because although a single reusable cup may set you back a couple of dozen dollars; if bought in bulk, this cost could actually be negligible! Not only do they cost much less when bought in bulk, you can also customise them based on your preference and they’ll make an excellent present for friends and family come Christmas! What a way to help your loved ones start their journey to more sustainable living!
Part of the reason why people choose to buy their coffee in disposable cups is that they’re easy to handle. But our reusable coffee cups make it just as easy for you to be more sustainable without having to worry about washing another cup when you get home. Just pop your cup in a dishwasher at the end of the day and you’re ready to go the next morning!
Unlike your paper coffee cup, a well-insulated reusable coffee cup will actually keep your drink hot for hours. So if you bought a cup of coffee but forgot all about it when you got to work and got immersed in your emails, your drink will still be waiting for you, just as fresh as when you first bought it!
